    In reasonable condition with no warning lights on, expect them still to knock you down 5-10% on value. You can challenge them and they will concede some things but in my experience rarely offer the computer price. That said it is fairly pain free and avoids hassle or advertising.

    Try sell your car to Jack. They're based over in Catherine Dr Barnes (by the hump back bridge).
    They offered me a better price for my motor than we by any car AND never haggle me down when I got there. Nice bunch of lads, looked the car over, checked the paperwork and paid up.
    Worth getting a quote at least

    Yeah and you can get chancers and timewasters too.

    And you could sell it and a week or two later they come back complaining about something.

    At least if you sell to these types of places you've washed your hands of it and I don't mean in a palmed off a dud kind of way either.

    Don’t do it. The online valuation will be more than you receive. Private sales are sold as seen so there is zero come back. On average they buy at 25% below the price they resell

    Wouldn't touch them. Have just sold my Range Rover and they wanted to give me nearly £4000 less than Land Rover gave me with Our a part 3rd.

    Wouldn't bother. The online quote is a con to get you in and they'll knock disproportionate amounts off for wear and tear. They flog the cars at auction with a margin so you're basically selling way below the market value.

    I'm always buying and selling cars. I get bored quickly. The last time I looked at selling one I got a quite off the AA site of £2,660. Then I looked at WBAC. They offered me £850. And then they charge an administration fee.

    If I want a quick hassle free sale I name all the faults and put them on Ebay. It costs a tenner to list and 10% of final amount up to a certain amount. It is where I buy and sell most of my cars. And a lit if the time you get offers to end early. Then you don't get the final valuation to pay. And have always got more than WBAC have offered.

    When I was looking to get rid of a car Evans Halshaw offered more than We Buy any Car. It wasn't as much as selling private but it was a little bit more.
